Burnham-On-Sea’s Princess Theatre is hosting a special event on Remembrance Sunday to mark the the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1.

‘Meet Tommy Atkins’ will take the audience through Private Tommy Atkins’ war, but also his life back home in Britain post war.

Tickets are on sale now for the event, which will be held on Sunday 11th November at 4.30pm.

“We learn of his experiences in the trenches – fighting on the Somme, at Passchendaele and Loos; and also of the boredom, the loss and indeed the comradeship,” says a spokesperson.

“Returning to Britain, Tommy shows us how a generation of returning men were maltreated but how ultimately it was his generation that forced through the foundations of the Welfare State.”

“From the beginning of the Great War to the end of the Second, Private Tommy Atkins was there. This is his story.”

Tickets are priced at £12 with special rates for RBL Members and veterans – phone or call in for details. To buy call 01278 784464 or book online.
